Great Perspective On Leadership Feb 27, 2001
Having had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Bowling personally as a college student at Olivet Nazarene where he is the president, I first and foremost must say that he lives what he teaches here in this book, the principles are not so much new, but it is a new take on them and a good reminder of things so easily forgotten and taken for granted in modern times. Dr. Bowling has had success as a leader in many, many positions and passes all he has learned down in this book. It probably sounds like I am kissing up to the college pres., but it truly is a great book and I have nothing by admiration for the man.
